Activities within the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership can only be successfully implemented and have their full impact if backed by accurate information, and effective communication. Raw data are needed to bring Euro-Mediterranean realities into focus, and that is the role of statistics. In addition, awareness of the Partnership’s progress and achievements comes through personal contacts and continuing access to information.
MEDSTAT includes thematic sub-programmes: external trade, environment (including water), transport, migration, tourism, national accounts, informal sector (i.e. non-observed economy); and two horizontal sub-programmes: training and information systems. The implementation of the Environment sub-programme, was entrusted to the Blue Plan by the European Commission.
The MEDSTAT project was prepared by the European Commission in 1996 for reinforcing production capacities and leveraging statistics in the twelve southern and eastern countries or authorities participating in the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership Agreement. Since Cyprus and Malta joined the European Union in 2004, there are now ten countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Israel, Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.
